The Beach 55

Fall, with its gloriously sunny yet not-too-hot weather is a wonderful time to take advantage of all this establishment has to offer in the way of truly stress-free dining with children. The surprisingly large fake beach is equipped with swings, sand toys and a children’s picnic table, and even if you have a little runner, they will have a long way to go and plenty of sand to get through before they make it out the door. As for lunch, we chose the 55 Kid’s Plate (¥750) and the French Smoke Bar-be-cue (¥2,000). I have to confess, the Kid’s Plate was a little on the unimaginative side with mini-egg salad sandwiches, ham and cheese sandwiches, apple slices, French fries and juice — but a good option for the less adventurous eater.

In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
